Atlanta, GA – YFN Lucci has reportedly surrendered to Atlanta police after a warrant was issued for his arrest earlier this week. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Lucci turned himself in on Wednesday night (January 13) and booked into Fulton County Jail around 11 p.m. local time.
Lucci faces multiple charges related to the December 2020 shooting death of 28-year-old James Adams, including felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
The 29-year-old rapper (real name Rayshawn Bennett) surrendered just hours after releasing a video for “Rolled On” to his Instagram and Twitter accounts, which was posted the day after Atlanta Police Homicide investigators announced he was wanted.
Atlanta attorney Thomas Reynolds declined to comment on Lucci’s charges but did say, “Every person has a presumption of innocence.”

Not long after Lucci surrendered, audio of the 911 call that reportedly led to his warrant was released by TMZ on Thursday (January 14). In the clip, a woman is on the phone with emergency dispatchers and describes seeing a white SUV speeding by “with a man hanging out of the car.” She also reveals they threw Adams out of the car and left him for dead.
Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Peeples Street in southwest Atlanta on the afternoon of December 10 and discovered Adams laying in the street. He was rushed to Grady Hospital, but doctors were unable to save him.
A second victim, 32-year-old Kevin Wright, was dropped off at a local fire station by a private vehicle minutes later, but he survived.
